First a couple of things:
1. Need an answer is not a very good topic. Try to give us more info about your question.
2. I don't think this was the appropiate forum to post to. I personally might have tried the general software forum because copying is software related. Mods may disagree.
Anyway, in answer to your question, if copied 1:1 then the protection remains in tact. Ive read that it is near impossible to copy a copy (there are ways around this, you could burn the image of the game on another cd, etc.). Plus, Nero probably isn't the best software to try to copy a copy with, better choices would be Clonecd, Alcohol, Blindwrite, etc. These softwares are specifically designed for 1:1, where as nero is designed for premastering.
Another thing, im not sure nero could copy it with the protection, are you sure it isn't a cracked version? Hope not, we don't allow cracks and illegal things to be discussed here. Did you make sure to read our forum rules?
